Descrip - Danish: IPA gæret 100% med brettanomyces og humlet med Galaxy, Citra, Summit og Cascade.

Tried out a small sampling of this non-American IPA at Poor Phil's. 1.5 oz. served in a pint taster on June 15th, 2012.

A - Pours a slightly hazy, light yellow. Appearance is saison or pilsner-like. Eggshell white head with good edge-clinging retention and okay lacing.

S - Very floral aromatics. There is a slight grassy Brett undertone, some lemon citrus, and a touch of a bready malt bill.

T - Weird, weak front-palate of wheat and grass transitions into a strong hop note at mid-palate. The hop quality pushes through the rest of the drink and overpowers everything else beyond recognition. Heavy lemon residue aftertaste.

M - Light body, fair carbonation, dry resiny finish.

D - Smell was vastly superior to the taste. Not likely to revisit even though the additions in this one make it "sound" appealing.

The initial look is that of solid IPA. Aroma is almost pure white wine. Taste is as well, with what is either an oaky or sour finish. Hard to tell the difference. Unfortunately, this was one that was not finished. A little too experimental this one was.

16.9 oz bottle into Duvel tulip... "Best Before 2013" on the bottle... (oops it's 2.3.13)

A - Poured with a crazy amount of head. Settled to a thin layer with decent retention. Good lacing.

S - MAJOR brett funk. Darker malt presence than expected. Some American hops in the background. Really dominated by the brett funk. Too much for me, probably.

T - I enjoy the flavor more than the aroma. I think that if this had been made with "regular" yeast, I would find it too malty, but it's not offensive. The funk is still pretty strong. Hops are detectable in the background, but everything is dominated by the brett funk.

M - Crisp and refreshing mouthfeel.

O - Ok, granted I drank this a little late but I was not thrilled by this beer. I will try it fresh if I have the chance. If you like a lot of brett... you may really enjoy this. I gave slightly higher scores because of the fact that I drank this a little late... Also - not sure this should really be considered an American IPA... :-) Again, maybe fresh the hops would have been able to hold up to the brett, but I don't think it would have been as much of an issue without the brett. Cool idea from a cool brewery.

It had a hoppy nose right up front from the Nelson Sauvign, but finished smooth, especially as it warmed up to room temp.

Served in tulip. Poured an attractive bright yellow color, but solid. Picture the thickest Hefe you've ever seen and double it. Totally opaque, no translucence at all. The beer had about a half-inch of bright white head that had low retention and decent lacing.

The lead aroma was a slight Brett scent, and a very low hop presence. There wasn't a real malt scent either. Both the Brett and the pine & citrus hops were a bit tangier on the tongue, and the citrus aspect lingered at the finish.

The body was nicely medium and surprisingly smooth. Drinkability was good, but I'm not sure I'd want 2 in a row. Overall, a nice enough brew, but one I'm not sure is worth it's $8 price.

Nose tropical fruit, floral, yeasty funk, spice, bready malts. Taste mild tropical fruit, spices, zest, sweet malts, slight bitter finish.
